DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
2008. The peace of a Borokanis north shore night is disturbed by a fiery explosion. Out of this fire fall machine parts, and then, a man. This man's name is Rono Kenuk, and he comes from "far away."
A year later, in Metriga, 18-year-old mechanics prodigy Daisuke Kerados tours Denanta Labs hoping for an internship. Rono Kenuk is employed here as part of a small team working on futuristic appliances and gadgetry. Denanta is run by an enigmatic figure only known as "Richard."
Rono wants to go back where he came from and thinks Daisuke can help him get there. Daisuke wants no part in this but ends up helping anyway after his explosive temper gets the better of him. What they end up discovering is beyond belief, as it may lead to the greatest treasure in Borokanis history. But for Rono, this could mean a way back home. Thanks to Rono's big mouth, however, he is not going to be the only one after it.
The premise is well developed and the storyline is easy to follow. With the lush details in the book, the characters come alive in one's imagination. The ending definitely keeps one wanting for more. Looking forward to the next installment.
